    Winterizing yourself?

    Do you winterize your ski yourself...or take it to the dealer?

    My dealer wants $150 to winterize my ski. (with oil change) Seems like a lot to me...but I want to be sure it's done right...and I'm not real mechanical.

    Its going to be my fist time winterizing. I will never take my ski to dealer, unless its warranty related.

    I take it to the dealer. I barely have time to ride let alone winterizing them.

    I will do it myself. It is not that hard with 4 strokes. The 15F directions look very detailed and that hard....

    I don't winterize my ski.

    I just dry it out. Add fuel stabilizer and say good bye for a few months.

    If you follow the instructions in the owners manual it is a breeze. It is also a great way to start to understand your ski. But I guess to some people it is hard. It is natural to me. Unlike calculus...grrr

    Re: Winterizing yourself?

    There is nothin to it! if you wanna be really basic, stable the fuel, pull the battery, or tender it. Make sure there isn't any water in the hull, you may be fine just like that, if you want to go and extra step, I flush a little pinky though the cooling lines, and anywhere it sits it sits all winter. If you have a 4stroke, make sure to change your oil before winter!
